HC Deb 13 November 1969 vol 791 c125W
34. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science in connection with the proposal to spend £105 million during the next financial year on 859 new school building projects, what procedure will be followed to ensure that so far as possible building materials produced or manufactured in Great Britain will be used in the construction of these schools.

Miss Bacon

I am satisfied that local education authorities can be relied upon to use home-produced materials where these are competitive.
